One Nation Under Fire.
Seemingly disparate portraits of people -- among them a single mother, a high school principal, and an ace student -- distinctly american -- all affected by the proliferation of guns in american society.

"...a polished exercise in the kind of social commentary that can wake people up.  Jami Bernard, New York Daily News

Professional Reviews

San Francisco Chronicle 7 of 10
Three story lines make up this tense movie, and while each has its strengths, they don't quite add up to a satisfying whole...Many scenes in these stories are satisfyingly gripping; they're rounded out by sharp performances by Whitaker, Harden and a young Christopher Marquette (Harden's character's son). Poignant moments emerge, too, as when we see a lonely African American teen listening to Johnny Cash songs behind a flimsy grill at his dangerous gas station job. - John McMurtrie

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
"American Gun" tells three stories that are small, even quiet. The stories are not strident but sad, and one of them is open-ended. They are about people who find that guns in the hands of others have made their own lives almost impossible to live..."American Gun" is a first feature by Aric Avelino, who co-wrote it with Steven Bagatourian. He shows an almost tender restraint in his story-telling, not pounding us with a message but simply looking steadily at how guns have made these lives difficult. - Roger Ebert
